insurance. he said there still listening to other options. i want to bring in bret bair. this has caused a firestorm of controversy. this poll shows 59% of americans do not want the democrats to go it alone. there are reports that they may want to go it alone. robert gibbs is going to great lengths to knock this down. >> this is all about the public and private discussions to try to shore up the base for the administration. at the town hall meeting in colorado, the president, and then kathleen sebelius, suggested that the administration might be willing to go forward with an idea that does not include the public option. by the way, that is government run health insurance. that is the plan that is included on the table. if they were going to abandon that. that sent off a firestorm of reaction from the left. now we have a lead in "the new york times" -- senior officials say they might go alonone. it is conservative democrats in the house and senate that have a real problem with the public option. in this briefing, the white house robert gibbs is trying to back away from "the new york times

: that part got their attention. alisyn: it did. that man joins us now live on the phone. good morning, bret. , good morning. >> bret, what had you so fired up at that town hall meeting? >> what had myself and many others fired up is what's going on with this bill and why they are pushing this bill through without even reading this thing. i'm sitting at home on my couch and talking with my family for the last couple months about what can we do about this? what can we do? there is nothing we can do but email our senators and congressman or what have you. and we decided it's time to stand up and get out to these town hall meetings. it's the only weapons we have. brian: bret, were you upset that your senator was at the table with democrats like max bachus with the senate finance committee trying to be at the table during this process and didn't walk away like senator hatch? >> no. that's not the issue that i have. i understand that you have to be in the room to know what's going on. what my problem is is that he said he would not vote for a bill or sign a bill the way it is presented right now.
. he should. bill: of course i deny it. that is ridiculous. shep smith, bret baier, myself, and many others have nothing to do with it. come on. bill: you know, hang in there. if it is right, you will get the proposal. how about our website? most importantly, that is the talking. memo on it. it is a good one tonight about how nbc news is in league with the president. oreilly@foxnews.com, oreilly@foxnews.com. name and town if you wish to go on. when writing to us, do not be a nebbish. that is it for us today. i am bill o'reilly. we hope you check it out. right a little comment to ge. keep at polite, you know? we will see you billoreilly.com premium members on the post-game show. we hope to see you next time. remember, the spin stops right here because we are definitely looking out for you. looking out for you.
to washington. i'm chris wallace in for bret baier. we begin tonight with more on the issue of privacy, and how the white house obtained e-mail addresses for hundreds of people who never gave them to the administration to get information on healthcare reform. senior white house correspondent major garrett tried to he get some answers thursday from the president's chief spokesman. he has the latest now on his continuing investigation. >> i would be interested to see who you got that e-mail from and whether or not they're on the list. >> well, you're asking me if they are on a list. i can't double-check without the list. >> fox news has received hundreds ofest mails who say that this letter from david axelrod landed in their in-box without them having requested any communication whatsoever from the obama white house. fox has repeatedly offered to share e-mail addresses with gibbs to find out how the recipients landed on the whiteh. gibbs has declined to respond. some recipients like lou pore that of uta are irked. >> it is not a function of the white house to get somebody's e-mail address, and do
overhaul. it has never been used for health care reform. bret bair joins us now. we call it the nuclear option because, in essence, this is a civil war in the senate. clear battle lines have been drawn. the democrats on one side. the democrats on the other. that is the way it is. >> it is important to point out that republicans have used this numerous times before. for a massive package like health care reform that is more than 1/6 of the nation's economy, there are lots of people, both democrats and republicans who say they should not be used in this piece of legislation. we are still a number of steps away from that, if senate majority leader harry reid decides he wants to use reconciliation. you would have to get over a number of hurdles. it is not clear that the health- care bill can make it over those hurdles that have been set up in the legislative process. the top hurdle is the piece of legislation has to be paid for for five years and has to be a deficit neutral after that. as we have seen, that is not the case with what is on the table right now. trace: what about the political
. bret, carl cameron was covering it a little bit earlier. what is latest on massachusetts politics? >> carl listed a number of people who could fill that seat, and one of them is vicki kennedy, and said to friends and family that she is not interested. but you do not know after this is over whether stepping into that role is a possibility. others -- the list is fairly long of possibilities there but the big question for massachusetts is rather whether they will change along. it was originally at the request of senator kennedy that the governor not a point in replacement and that the election happened within 145 at 160 days. that was meant to prevent mitt romney from 20 republican -- appointing a republican. weeks ago, senator kennedy's family sent a letter to the legislature there to see if they could change it back for this appointment. we will see what happens. my guess is that they make a change and have the governor appoint a replacement, and there are lots of possibilities, a long list. i do want to mention about the funeral mass, we have confirmation now from church officials

of the fans. the last thing i want to tell you about, in wisconsin, remember how bret favre said he was ready to play football -- we just have confirmed that he is on his way, on a flight to the minnesota vikings. if all goes well in a perfect world, his agent says, he will sign. can you imagine having to walk across the border in viking country and see him where a viking uniform? where has the world on? jon: some pretty troubling passport camera from minneapolis. it is leading to an investigation. the tape shows daryl dinkins being pulled over for a traffic stop. a whole bunch of cops are punching and kicking him and even pulled out eight taser at one point. the police chief and minneapolis says there is a cause for concern, but they stopped short of saying what they did. he was pulled over why? >> he said he was at a stoplight. >> so they get out of the car, and declined is taken down and five other officers show up? >> that is right. it proceeded to punch and kick and elbow him. jon: i guess the question is, what did he say or do? for some time, they said, it does look good, but some time
pursue their dream in an america that is more equal and more just, including myself. martha: bret bair, this news, although everybody knew it was likely to be coming, it sinks in in many parts of the country, and is felt so strongly in washington. he and his family made civil rights the hallmarks of what he did. how is his loss felt where you are? >> there is outpouring of response from both sides of the ideal. when you look at his 36-year career, it's banned overtime presidencies. he authored or coauthored 2500 pieces of legislation. they were big pieces of legislation. as you mentioned, the civil rights legislation, title 9, cobra. some people say that you can measure a man by what his adversaries say about him. there are a lot of republicans who ideologically were diametrically opposed to senator ted kennedy who are coming out in droves today praising his career on the senate. we learned that former president george w. bush called mrs. vicky kennedy this morning and passed on their condolences. senator ted kennedy worked with president bush on a child left behind. most people you ta
